At any stage of the writing process, writers can meet with a trained consultant to generate feedback and strategies to improve writing projects, and better yet, writing skills.
For writers who commute or need to work remotely, this option offers the same service during a real-time appointment with a writing consultant online. Our online consultation takes place through the WCOnline Scheduler used to make appointments. When making an appointment, click on the "Online" option under "Meet in Person or Online." Then, when its time for your session, go back to your registration page and click on "Start Online Conversation."

The Writing Center provides several workshops, for all students, faculty, staff, and alumni, on specific topics to support improvement of writing skills. Topics may include: APA Jeopardy, Resume vs. CVs, Writing Ready for College, Presentation Strategies, Critical Thinking and Analysis, Paper Organization 101 and more! These interactive and engaging workshops allow you to learn new strategies and give you opportunities to practice your craft. And remember, refreshments are provided so come by to grab a snack and learn something new! Check out our events page for the entire workshop schedule. Proof of attendance provided.
At The Writing Center, we know that much writing takes place in a peer setting as a communal undertaking, creating teachers and learners simultaneously out of all those involved. For this reason, you can schedule a regular meeting of a writing group — a small group of writers working closely with a Writing Center facilitator — to read and respond to each other’s work, moving toward the common goal of peer education.The primary purpose of the groups is to help individuals talk about writing with one another in mutually beneficial ways. For more information about Graduate Writing Groups, please contact our coordinator at email@example.com.
A Writer’s Studio is a sequence of six consultation sessions with the same writing consultant. It is designed for graduate writers working on large-scale writing projects, for multi-lingual writers, and for writers who seek time management support with long-term writing projects.
The Write’s Studio can be scheduled from the following options:
- semi-weekly (twice per week for three weeks)
- weekly (once per week for six weeks)
- bi-weekly (once every other week for twelve weeks)
The Writer’s Studio option offers a guaranteed set of appointments with one writing consultant to provide continuity and facilitate language acquisition and/or guidance throughout the overall writing process. Graduate student writers with long-term projects due at least two weeks in advance can request this service to support their progress throughout the larger project.
To request a Writer’s Studio, sign up for a consultation. At the bottom of your appointment form, select the Writer’s Studio option you would prefer. You will work with your consultant during this first appointment to set up the series together.
